voyeuses à genoux (voyeuses, <chairs by function>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Chairs having a very low seat and a padded top rail, designed for female spectators of card games, who could kneel while resting their arms on the padded top rail. Males would sit astride a "voyeuse" with a somewhat higher seat, but it was considered inelegant for women to sit astride. For chairs having a very similar design but intended for prayer, use "prie-dieu chairs." Prie-dieu chairs may be made of humble materials, such as a wooden frame with a rattan seat-kneeler, or they may be upholstered; they may include a shelf for prayer books. If they are part of a set, it is usually a bedroom set. Voyeuses à genoux are always upholstered, and are generally part of a larger set along with voyeuses intended for males.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een bepaald soort voyeuse die speciaal voor vrouwen was gemaakt om op te knielen, aangezien schrijlings zitten voor hen niet elegant werd gevonden. 
German ..... Stuhl mit sehr niedrigem Sitz und gepolstertem Lehnenabschluss, der für weibliche Zuschauer eines Kartenspiels konstruiert wurde, die darauf knien konnten, während sie ihre Arme auf dem gepolsterten Lehnenabschlussbrett ablegten. Männer würden rittlings auf einem ähnlichen Möbel mit etwas höher gelagerter Sitzfläche sitzen, jedoch wurde diese Art der Sitzhaltung für Frauen als unelegant angesehen. Für einen Stuhl in annähernd identischer Form, der allerdings zum Beten bestimmt war, siehe "Prie-Dieu". Der "Prie-Dieu" kann aus einfachen Materialien gefertigt sein, wie beispielsweise einem Holzgestell mit Rattan-Knie-Sitz, oder er kann gepolstert sein; er kann über eine Ablage für Gebetbücher verfügen. Ist er Teil einer Garnitur, handelt es sich gemeinhin um eine Schlafzimmergarnitur. Eine Voyeuse à genoux ist immer gepolstert und in der Regel, zusammen mit der Voyeuse für Männer, Teil einer umfangreicheren Möbelgarnitur. 
Spanish ..... Un tipo especial de voyeuse diseñado para que las mujeres se arrodillen encima, como si fuese poco elegante para ellas sentarse a horcajadas.
